My new fav jacket Great design by Klim. Looks sharp without making you feel like a Power Ranger. The armour is ok, combined with Gore-tex makes this jacket an unbeatable value. Also, what's the deal with Klim raising the prices on this jacket? Now they are just being greedy. November 30, 2014
First rate jacket I've only had the jacket a short time, so these are my initial impressions. I'm 5'7" 185 and got a size medium. It is a tad snug, but I'm sure a large would be way too big. Overall, I'm very pleased with the jacket--it seems to be of high quality. One big thing: it is comfortable. A curiosity, however. There's a snap on the zipper pull for the outer chest pocket, and I can't find anything that would logically attach to the snap. I emailed Revzilla and Klim and no one knows why there's a snap there. It's not a mistake because you can see a snap in the same place on the jacket in the video. (Haven't tested durability) November 17, 2014
Fantastic This is a great all around jacket. I'm 6'3" around 200lbs and while a Large probably would have fit fine, I went with the XL for the sleeve length and the extra room for layering in cold weather. Without layers it is a little billowy when riding and could do with some more cinching around the torso, but it doesn't really bother me. I plan to wear this primarily in cooler and cold temps so the extra room for layers is more important. With the vents open and no layers it was comfortable into the low 70s, but any higher would start to get too warm for me. With the vents shut and some layers this jacket is comfortable into the 40s. The Goretex works as expected, keeping me dry and warm during a few showers this past weekend. Very pleased with this jacket. October 14, 2014
This jacket is good! I live in a city that has the most unpredictable weather on earth. So, this jacket is perfect because it has ventilation zippers for that high temperature days, and the Gore Tex technology helps you when the rain doesn't have mercy on you. It is just perfect! Also includes back, shoulders and elbows protection. Cool! October 7, 2014
Excellent all weather jacket I practically lived in this jacket on a 2700 mile trip from Oregon through Montana. I experienced rains and smokey forest fires. I also wear it commuting in Oregon rainy weather, very dry. In the heat, the zip vents work great. A very "boxy" cut, but that allows nice layering with my down jacket for colder weather. The neck pulls up tight very nicely to keep out the chill, I am impressed with how well it works without being uncomfortable. Fits true to size. August 4, 2014
Great Product for on and off road and more I love Klim and their products. The Overland is just a great jacket. The material is durable, assembled with great workmanship, it keeps water and wind off but helps your skin breathing; it looks good and it feels good. When in NY the snow is up our knees i take the padding off and wear it as an everyday jacket. It doesn't have a great deal of pockets (I love cargo pockets) so i am forced to travel lean and light. Ventilation is also good even though the top of the back doesn't get much airflow when it's hot out. The latch on the neck is a bit tight and cannot be adjusted (a minus) but when the velcro is closed i get full protection. No major complains there. the padding goes well around elbows/shoulders/back for added protection. I bought the grey coloured jacket and now i am thinking to buy the pants too even though it is another is expense. Pay attention to wask the jacket with the zip up so not to damage the zip and the meash on the jacket. Well done Klim. July 31, 2014
Great jacket I bought both the pants and jacket in April. They have what appears to be very good protection and durability. Coolest temps I have used it in is 40 and it was very comfortable. When you get to high 80's and 90's it does get a bit warm. Great rain protection. July 24, 2014
High Quality Bought this jacket and matching pants several months ago for a two month trip to Canada and Alaska from Tennessee. Jacket performed beautifully! Goretex linning kept me 100% dry. The jacket is everything that the description entails. I only encountered a few drawbacks. To start off I'm 6'4" and 190lbs. Klim doesnt offer a tall size in their jackets, so to get enough sleeve length i had to order the next size up jacket which also got me more mateial around the mid section. With that being said, my drawbacks may stem from the jacket being a bit big. Here goes. 1.The jacket has the D3O armor in it. That being said, the back pad seemed heavy and pulled the jacket down in the back creating a tightness against the front of my neck. 2. The collar could be a bit taller by an 1/2 to 1 inch. I had some slight issues with heavy rain getting down my neck past the collar. 3. A waist or mid chest cinch/ velcro strap would be nice to hold in some of the excess jacket during high speed travel. I found that a bungee strap around the waist did the trick and helped hold the back pad in place. The extra rooom in the mid section did allow for more clothing to be worn while in northern Canada and Alaska. The Gore-tex linning did its job wonderfully, keep the rain out! I knew it wouldnt breathe well with the gore-tex, but that was the trade off i was willing to make for 100% waterproof. That's where the zip vents come in super handy! just be sure to zip them up when the rain comes! Iplan to keep wearing the gear. Its level of durability and quality create a safe feeling when i have it on. I wont ride without it on again! July 21, 2014

Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
H O: Like most, don't like the idea of a waterproof liner under a non-waterproof jacket nor having to carry a rain jacket that doesn't breathe. Plus, Goretex and Cordura is a good combination. Works well up to 90's as long as moving. Fellow riders are noticing and purchasing Klim. Commissions???? Sep 16, 2014
Tom K: Has armor integrated. Gore tex shell. Ventilation on the back that will not be obstructed by a backpack. Simple. Jul 8, 2014
Larry S: Wanted a waterproof, windproof jacket to wear most of the riding season but yet able to open up the vents for 80's degree temps, this item fits that bill. Jun 20, 2014
Stuart M: Had a small off yesterday (bloody roadworks) and shredded the previous jacket. This looks like it provides good climate control for Sydney weather, and touring around. Jun 17, 2014
Don M: I want true waterproof, I want decent levels of crash protection and I want comfort. I don't want heavy and limiting of my movement, I ride to feel free. This jacket looks well made and designed (waist cinching aside). I chose this jacket to meet my criteria as well for the reviews I have seen of Klim equipment. I also chose it because Klim have kept working on their design (neck comfort for example) which shows a company that does care about the quality of their products. Also a sensible price! Jun 4, 2014
Adam S: Brand reputation, waterproof, not obviously motogear, ability to do my own layering, design and materials. Also, because I'm not sure whether I'll choose the Overland or the Rukka AirRider so I'm taking advantage of RevZilla's consumer friendly policies. Thanks for that. Jun 3, 2014
Edward C: Great price for Gore Tex May 12, 2014
Thomas B: Klim has good quality reputation, jacket had features I was most concerned with (armor type and amount, material type). Mar 31, 2014

Artur Carlos B: Good protection and waterproofing Sep 16, 2013
Kalin W: Integrated outer goretex, top brand, top armor, nice styling. Sep 4, 2013
JOSE L asked: Need help making choices. Early next year I have a 10-day adventure trip planned in Ecuador which includes both hot/humid and cold/rain/snow. I was decided on the Overland jacket and pants but then I started to compare it to the Badlands Pro jacket and pants but at almost double the price of the Overland, I was wondering if it was really worth the premium price difference? I see that the Badlands is a 3 -ply Gortex rather than the 2-ply of the Overland. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Jul 21, 2014

Robert M: I purchased the overland jacket as a commuter jacket and I'm very pleased by the choice. I live in Kansas where the temperature ranges from very hot and humid to freezing cold. I normally don't use the included zip in liners for most jackets as I prefer to use more of a layering method depending on the weather and my destination. The Overland makes layering easy with plenty of room for a fleece or other base layers. I also find the venting of the jacket to be pretty good considering the vents are not designed to direct air into the jacket but seem to be more for letting hot air out. I've ridden with it in 100 degree weather and it is better than other jackets I've had but it is still a waterproof jacket and will get hotter than mesh. I've ridden through some awesome Kansas style thunderstorms and the jacket kept me completely dry when other jackets I've had would have failed.
Overall, I really don't think I would choose anything else. For the price I really do think this is probably the most versatile jacket available. Now that I have the Overland I feel the Badlands really would be overkill for my needs and the way I ride.

Scott M: Jose,

I too looked at all the models in the Klim catalog. For me I mainly commute with some longer rides on the weekends. A waterproof shell was my main criteria in looking for a jacket. Naturally I gravitate towards the higher end but couldn't justify the added expense. I did not need 50 pockets, belts, adjustments, or any extra frills. The 3 ply vs. 2 ply construction was my only hang up. I chose the Overland because it fit my needs, wasn't overly complicated or busy. The armor goes unnoticed and doesn't inhibit movement. I think if I were going on an expedition, I would probably choose the Traverse line. Still durable without any extra bells and whistles. I like the idea of layering for the climate, just the shell when warm, layered up when cold. With the Overland, I am very pleased with the quality. I'm 6', 300 lbs. and chose a 3xl. The fit/cut is spot on except for the arms are a little tight, but I have pretty big forearms. Hope this helps, good luck!

Fred Z: While I think this is a great jacket for the price, I'm not sure it will meet your needs. With the lack of ventilation and lack of a warm liner, it wouldn't do well in extreme conditions - cold or hot.

My biggest problem with this jacket is that it only has 2 vent zips on the front, and 2 on the back. While they are large vents, there are jackets with more ventilation that would work better for hot weather.

The jacket also has a minimal amount of pockets and adjustment straps which hurts the utility. I would look at some of the higher end Klim jackets or some other brands that would have a greater amount of versatility for the same price point.

Robert P: Jose,

Sounds like a great trip. Since I have not used a Badlands Pro kit I can't make a comparison. The only thing I'll offer is that the Overland works well to keep me pretty dry in 1-2 hours of rainy wet weather. In heavy or pouring rain I usually put on a yellow rain suit for visibility.

Keep in mind that it's not really a summer jacket. The 4 vents are Ok but you can get pretty warm and sweaty in sustained hot/humid conditions. If I was wearing this jacket/pants in a sun-baked area or in continually hot conditions I might go with the lighter color. Have fun!

Carl T: The overland is a good jacket but it just the shell. You have to add or subtract layers. I use it with heated gear in cold weather and find it to be great. The badlands comes with everything but the overland when used with the right layers can be very effective. So my answer would be the badlands ic worth the price if you really want it but the overland is a great alternative to save money . Just watch the sizing they seem a little smaller then I'm used to but they may have designed intentionally that way for the waterproofing.(sleeves have tight opening, shoulders were normal) Jul 22, 2014

Mark B: I was riding in the rain over mountain passes two days ago. Didn't get wet in my jacket. A bit cool but I could have put a down liner in without a prob. In the heat you will be hot and sweaty. I found I like to zip the bottom zipper up to open the air flow. It's a double zipper. I also took out the back pad. It's a good jacket. Jul 22, 2014

Scott L: Hi Buyer.

The included armour is removable, and the jacket is durable and nicely detailed. On the negative, the back armour insert is a bit lean. Still, this piece is well worth the price.

John R asked: looking for a jacket to replace my tourmaster. any type of winter liner included with the jacket .? Sep 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Larry S: The Klim Overland jacket is without any additional liners, other than the mesh liner which is built in and not for warmth or rain.

With that stated, I was previously using a Tourmaster Transition 2 jacket for about 5 years. This Klim Overland jacket is much more of an outer wear jacket by a long shot. It is both warmer and cooler than the Transition 2 jacket without the liner.

For a warmth liner, I used in both jackets the Tourmaster Synergy electric liner. With the liner turned on behind a K1200RS (with GT wind protection) the Klim jacket is good for another 10-20 degrees than the Tourmaster was per heat settings. The Tourmaster just lets too much air in through the fabric, but yet wasn’t that much better if at all in hot temperatures with all vents open then the Overland is. True when using a separate liner such as an electric liner, they are not zipped or attached and will be a separate jacket to remove. This is both a plus and minus, myself, I prefer this so it is easier to change with the day’s riding temperature changes.

Rain, hands down the Klim wins, no contest.

The Overland does not have the same pocket features of the Transition, but again if that is wanted, step up to the Klim Latitude or Badlands for more even $$.

edward s: No winter liner. It really is just an expensive shell. To be completely honest, I would not purchase this jacket, nor any other klim product again. I used the jacket for a cross-country summer trip. The jacket was fine for the trip, however, once I returned home and washed the jacket as instructed by klim dealers and the care instructions, the mesh holding the armor tore out. And, contrary to the exceptional reviews about product warranty, I found the company to be just the opposite. They expected me to pay for the repairs. I would go with Revit. You won't find a warmer winter jacket, they have removable layers, and are waterproof. Sorry, if you were sold on the klim, and this is simply my experience. Ride safe. Sep 23, 2013

Scott M: Hey John,

There is no liner with the Overland. It is just a shell that is meant to wear over layers. I like that feature because in the summer it is fine by itself, then as the seasons change you can add layers as needed. I commute in the Northeast, so I see all types of weather. I like the fact that the Gore-tex is waterproof on the outside. Other brands of jackets say they're waterproof, or have a waterproof membrane but after a couple seasons they leak through. Very pleased with the quality of Klim gear. Highly recommended!!

The Overland falls into the Klim food chain as a more light-weight version of something like the Latitude. In recent years, we've seen the Latitude, we've seen the Badlands Pro, the Overland is going to be full-scale Gore-tex. It's a two-layer construction. And remember, it's an outer shell. The Gore-tex liner is not removable; waterproof, breathable, guaranteed for life. You're investing in Gore-tex because it keeps you shielded from Mother Nature, but also allows you to breathe. Remember, I did mention tactical outer shells, which is what Klim does; they let you choose whether it's a thermal liner, or how you want to beef up your base and mid-layers underneath. But really, they're meant to be 4-season pieces of apparel.

The Overland also takes a lot of its inspiration from something like the Traverse, which is an off-road enduro piece that a lot of people were using on the street. The Overland is going to come with your D3O armour; it comes with everything you need right off the rack, and rock-solid. And, watch our detailed breakdown video of the Overland pants by Peter Waring to my left as well. We don't want to break them down. We did that in a separate video. Now keep in mind too, as you're seeing this first glance, click here, subscribe to RevZilla TV, and leave us your comments; love to hear your questions as well.

Let's dive right in on sizing. So, Peter, 6', 195, 42" chest; he has actually a little bit more muscular legs as well on this outfit. You see the way that he's filling it out, but he is wearing a size large. It's the same size that Peter wears in the Traverse. We find the fit is not that much different. One of the things we did notice, and I'm going to nitpick it a little bit, is if Peter raises his arms, it's a little bit boxy down here under the arms. They've changed the vent configuration. I'm going to show that in a second. But, if you can see how it hangs; love to see some maybe cinching on this jacket. I'm not sure how we could slightly pull that off. It's feedback back up the flagpole to clients. But also keep in mind, we ship for free and exchange for free; no restocks when you need to send it back. So, don't fret if the only place you can find it is with us, online and you want to take that chance on sizing.

Now, reeling that back for a second, let's talk a little bit more highly about this outfit. It's really 4-seasons, which means you're waterproof where you beef up the thermal layers underneath for the winter, but in the summer, you have plenty of ventilation and it's going to be able to go through it and keep you cool. In spring and fall, motorcycling is typically an easier time of the year for most people depending on your temper or your tolerance for waterproofing. So, the key things here, big changes over the Traverse; down the arm, you're going to see there are big vertical vents now that are water resistant zippers that tie in with the Gore-tex integrated waterproof laminate here. But, there's your intakes on both sides.

On the Traverse, they used to be under the arms. They're a little harder, a little bit more out of the way. Now, you have a little bit more access to them. Basic hand-warmer pockets on the front. And, turn around; I'm going to show them the back really quickly here. This is the big feature here for summertime riding -- big scoops on the back, big exhausts that are going to allow that free-flowing air to come out. Turn back around to the front for me, Peter; musical chairs here. Now looking at the shell itself, it's going to be 840D Cordura in impact areas. You can see it in this darker grey. Remember there's a black version of this outfit as well. So, dark grey up here around the shoulders, along the arms, end of the sleeve, areas that are going to be more prone to abrasion. You saw it on the back of the jacket. And, it's an abrasion resistant textile that's not Cordura that you are going to see. It's a little softer. It's not quite crunchy. It has a nice feel to it in the main construction.

Other thing I want to call out is we talked about armour, D3O armour included. And if you do the math and you bought a Traverse, which is less street-centric and a much different style, and added the D3O to it later, it would actually be more expensive to do that. In the Overland, you're getting it all in one shot. So D3O, EVO armour, XT, extended temperature; it's molecular armour. On impact, it disperses the energy. You can see it's that orange armour, it's very flexible, it's very comfortable. But, the XT rating means that even when you go really deep into the temperature range, it's still going to be comfortable against your body, it's still going to do its job in the case of impact.

Shoulders and then, elbows, you're also getting a CE Level 1 back protector that you could upgrade, but it comes stock here in the back which is a nice feature. Now, looking up to the collar, some of the creature comforts and nuances; nice big fleece-lined collar here. Peter rocks a Traverse Jacket. He was mentioning to us that it works for him, it's a stand-up collar. It's really a multi-season touring style outfit. Big YKK zippers, Vislon pulls. Notice it was a two-way zipper. So if you're on an upright bike, you can give yourself a little room to flare it at the bottom. And also, if we look at the reflective scheme, this is something we're seeing come down the pipe from Klim. As they're looking at reflective, they're saying they want to make sure that the humanoid form can be recognized by somebody that's just seeing headlights hit a dark rider at night.

So, shoulders, elbows, forearms, down toward the sleeve, you're going to see it as you work your way down the pants, and see how that would light up, and be bright, and make sure that somebody has a better chance of knowing you're a person on a bike, and they can stop accordingly. Velcro going all the way down with a snap at the collar. Basic on the inside; remember, it's a technical shell. You're going to add your own layers to it. So, mesh lining, iPod pocket, all YKK zippers throughout; some cinching here on the bottom, but again, it's not going to do anything around those kidney areas. You even have loops to be able sneak your iPod or headphone wires all the way up.

Now, turn backwards for me one more time, Peter. I'll walk a little bit more in depth through the back. Pull-cinching here up along the back of the neck for the collar; we talked about that fleece lining, its wicking. Reflectivity, you see that with these big pulls, and then the drop seat that comes all the way down. Look at this. This cut is much more for an upright or three-quarter riding position. I'm not going to recommend it for the tuck at all.
